Dear Mr Cameron,
I was dismayed to see all the papers carrying your remarks on Fathers Day.
To use the analogy of drunk-drivers and 'runaway Fathers' is to say the very lest distasteful. My friends 10 year old son was killed by a drunk driver, and there is no comparison.
Of course fathers who do not take responsibility of parenthood needs to be addressed, but to apparently tar all fathers with the same brush is ridiculous.
I appreciate your comments on the importance of Fathers in all families, so why is it that you and your government will not legislate for shared parenting in the Family Justice Review, to say one thing but not act on them is hypercritical.
This government must have the power of its convictions, and take this golden opportunity with the family justice changes, to stop this dreadful situation of children being denied contact with their children, because of Parental Alienation.
It is the human right of all children to have the love and care of both parents.
This opportunity will not come around again, the lost generation is looking to you and your government to put this right once and for all.
Every day is a heartbreaking day, but Fathers Day is a even more difficult for the thousands of fathers who would give anything to have contact with their children, my son being just one. He has had no contact since 2007 , he has always paid child maintenance without question, so he is not a 'runaway' dad.
